Halloween is Friday October 31st. Students may dress in costumes that day. If a student dresses in costume, they do not have to follow the collared/VIDA shirt dress code. Students not wearing costumes must still adhere to the school dress code. Costume parameters: No masks or covered faces, all costumes must be modest in nature, and appropriate for school (ie: no fake or replica weapons, etc).

Our Halloween Dance will be Friday October 31st, from 3:45pm - 5:15pm in the VIDA Gym. Admission is $5.00 and tickets can be bought that week during lunch, or at the door. Students may wear costumes to the dance (same costume rules as above).
